We’re talking about walking in the Light, as He walks in the Light. Our walk in this Light, gets brighter and brighter. There’s a torch before our feet and it’s the Word of God.
The path God has for us gets brighter and brighter. If it’s getting darker and darker, then you’re on the wrong path.
1 John 1:5
“This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you,
that God is LIGHT and in Him is no darkness at all."
God is Light and in Him is NO darkness at all.
“For with You is the fountain of LIFE;
In Your LIGHT we see light.”
The “life” is the Light. Life and Light go together. And death and darkness go together. There’s life in Light, and death in darkness. God is Light and in Him is NO darkness at all, and in Light, we SEE Light.
“Fountain” is referred to as living water, because it was moving. A lot of times, when people are discussing doctrines and scriptures, they don’t want to know the truth, and they have a lot of pride. Many of these people start getting a lot of ‘head’ knowledge and intellect, and trying to impress each other with their knowledge, and those types of folks do not get grace. And the only way we get Light, is by grace.
So, you have to approach this in the Faith-realm to start with, or it’s just a locked door.
You can study, and you can discuss, and you can research until you just faint from fatigue. And unless the Lord reaches inside you and turns the Light on and shows it to you, you will never see it.
You know, when Jesus was talking to His disciples, He said, ‘These things, people have desired to look into these things and didn’t see them, BUT the Father has revealed it unto BABES.’ And He said, ‘Unless you be converted and become like a little child’… you can’t think that you’re so smart and can figure everything out.
You have to come before the Father in humility and acknowledge that, “Unless You show me, I will never see it.” Then, what has been evading you for decades, He can just open your eyes and it’s so simple, but it’s LIGHT.
He enlightens you.
He wants you in the Light, and not the darkness. He is not trying to hide it from you.
His wisdom is FOR us, NOT from us.
A lot of people say, “Well, I guess God doesn’t want me to know/understand that”. Well, that has a whole lot with what the devil said to Adam and Eve in the garden. The devil said, “Well, God doesn’t want you to know this and that.” As if God had pride because you’d be like Him!
That’s ridiculous… as if YOU could threaten Him with your knowledge! God doesn’t have to hold back knowledge, to keep something for Himself. That’s ridiculous!
So, looking at that verse in Psalm 36:9:
“For with You is the fountain of LIFE; In Your LIGHT we see light.”
This verse shows we can’t see Light LOOKING at darkness. But if you’ll look at Light, it will take you into more Light. And it’s up to US what we choose to look at.
“”No one lights a lamp and then hides it or puts it under a basket.
Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand,
where its light can be seen by all who enter the house.’”
The Light of the body is the eye, and that word is for “lamp”. He’s not hiding it. He wants us to see it. Some people ask, “How can Light in you be darkness?” Well, it’s what you’re looking at, to give you enlightenment.
“’If you are filled with light, with NO dark corners,
then your whole life will be radiant,
as though a floodlight were filling you with light.’”
If you’re looking at the wrong thing, it’s going to let darkness inside you.
Don’t talk about what you don’t know.
Don’t talk about what you don’t understand.
Don’t talk about what you don’t see.
Don’t talk about what you don’t have or can’t do.
That’s peering into darkness. He said, ‘In My Light, you will see Light, you will get Light.’ You need to be talking about what you know.
Talk about what you HAVE seen.
Talk about what you HAVE done in Me.
This will lead you into the Light that you are searching for.
